My parent from the time I was born had to be sure there were no dyes, additives, abrasive cleansers or such in my soap, shampoos, powders, laundry detergents etc. My mother began making soaps, shampoo and laundry detergent and taught all her children how to do at well. The fun part was we each had or own personal scent. By the time I was ten I could make lavender, rose, orange blossom, peach, gardenia and lilac, soaps, shampoos and body lotions and powder. Somewhere over the years of shots as my tolerance grew I got away from making these soaps and such. In Kelly Cable's The Natural Soap making Book for beginners I got a refresher course. I was surprised by how much I remembered and how similar Kelley's instructions were to what my mother and grandmother taught me,. As I slowly made up a batch of the soap I was taken back decades with the smell of scented soaps slowly cooling in the molds. This truly is a primer for those just learning or those like myself trying to remember and get black into the flow of making these beautiful bars once more. Whether for your self or to give as gifts you will find the recipes easy to follow, the text is easy to understand. Ms. Gable goes over the basic equipment, ingredients, safety precautions and decorative techniques. So put your mind at ease. If you have been wanting to try, but been afraid it would be too time consuming or costly or just to difficult the fear no more. The Natural Soap Making Book breaks it down and guides you along step by step. My rating of "The Natural Soap Making Book for Beginners - Do-It-Yourself Soaps Using All-Natural Herbs, Spices, and Essential Oils" is 4.75 out of 5 stars.
